2G Needs Dramatic Play Furniture

Our Pre-K Classroom at the St. Vincent DePaul Center in Chicago, IL is in need of new dramatic play furniture!  Right now, our closet is too large for students to easily reach the hooks, the plexi-glass on the oven had be removed after breaking and creating a safety hazard, our stove is being held together by duct tape, and all the magnetic doors are broken so nothing stays shut.  Unfortunately, we do not have any money in our budget for new furniture.  Please donate so that we can create a new, beautiful, and safe, dramatic play area for us to learn and grow during the 2017-2018 school year!
